Happy Dance, Happy Dance
Everybody Happy Dance!
It's Friday, and since my presentation passed with no need for revisions, I've finished that class. Woohoo!!
I took last night off (from school anyway) and did more enjoyable things. Like revising my short story. And playing games with my sons. And not stressing about how much homework I still have to get done.
It's nice to take a day off every once in a while. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm fairly overburdened with way too many challenges. Writing is currently taking a back seat (most of the time) to other more critical items, so while I'd like to make it a full-time gig that I do every day, it's almost impossible. It's kind of ironic then that I consider finding time to write part of "taking time off". It's work, but it's fun work. It's a balmy summer day for my soul and mental health.
The other thing on my radar is NanoWriMo. I seriously wish I was done with this class and could participate this year. And who knows, if I finish up by the end of this month, maybe I still can. Last year, it was really fun to do and it felt great writing every day towards that goal of 50K words. I got close last year too (almost 36K words) before I had to stop. I don't regret it though, because I was able to focus once more on school and graduate last December with my Bachelors degree.
Don't ask me why I decided to go back for more homework fun.
Rather than continuing to ramble, I'm going to wish you all a fun-filled weekend. Me, I'm going to get some writing done and launch my assault on Cyber-Law on Monday. Now play the Peanuts song again and Happy Dance wherever you are. It's Friday, and Fridays were made for dancing with abandon.
